BEST REVERB PEDAL? and BEST PHASE SHIFTER PEDAL?

I need buy a gift to my brother, and he likes these effects. I don't know about that, so I ask what pedals you recommend me for that effects (pedals, no racks). (money isn't problem but if is cheap, better haha)

Thanks.

1. what kind of music does he play?

2. what other gear is he using?


without knowing either of these, i'm going to go ahead and suggest the verbzilla reverb and the small stone phaser.

Here's a crappy clip of my Red Witch Moon Phaser. It's about the best but you have to tweak it to get a "musical" sound with distortion; it sounds amazing with it, just not very transparent.

Nothing wrong with a Small Stone, but you won't get those kind of epic textures with it. Since it's a present go with the Small Stone.

Some safe bets would be:

Reverb:
Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/produ...dal?sku=153319

Phaser:
Electro-Harmonix Small Stone
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/produ...dal?sku=153315

or

MXR Phase 90

He likes noise, shoegaze, post-rock, space rock and ambient.
He always said he likes the reverse reverb

I'd definitely recomend a Small Stone phaser. I know that the Digitech Digital Reverb has a reverse reverb mode, but I haven't actually played with one before. A friend really likes his though. I've been looking at the Verbzilla. It doesn't have a reverse mode, but there's definitely some good sounds to be had.

I believe the only reasonally priced pedal that can do reverse reverb is the digitech digiverb, which I've heard is quite good by the way.

For phase I'd go with either the MXR phase 90. I use it and love it.

You can't go wrong with either a phase 90 or a small stone. Reverb I'm not so sure....there are alot more options.

Yes, Small Stone is awesome.

MXR 90 is very good, too.

I have a question... how is the MXR 100?

In my opinion, it's better sounding and more versatile than a non-script phase 90.

Digitech XDV Digiverb and EHX Small Stone hands down. no real comparison for the price (you can get both for about $100). both are excellent pedals. i own the former and two of the latter!

The Marshall RF1 has a reverse reverb function. I can't vouch for its quality. But I am really curious about it. It is reasonably priced.

The Holy Grail is great for the price. I love mine.

If you can find an old Ross Phaser from the 70's they are one of the coolest phasers I have heard. Pretty cheap, kind of hard to find but well worth the search.

Good luck.

while i own a Digiverb, the RF-1 is on my board. it's one of the more natural reverb sounds i've heard in a pedal. the spring function isn't overly pingy, the reverse is pretty cool, and the hall and plate settings are fabulously warm. i also really like the hi-cut knob. the only problem (if you want this function anyway) is that it won't get 100% wet. oh, and you can also control the amount of reverb with an expression pedal--another cool feature.


my problem with the holy grail, and i've said this before, is that the reverb doesn't trail when you turn the pedal off. it just cuts off in a really unnatural, abrupt way. it's the only thing that's turned me off from the holy grails.

the Marshel reflector (rf-1) is one of my fav reverb pedals, i had one for about three weeks and lost it, so I'm stuck with my boss RV-5 which isn't bad but lacks the marshel's warmth.

As for a phase pedal, I love my EHX Stereo Polyphase, it's just so amazingly tweakable

my .02

happy hunting!
